Airdate: GCB

Seven has scheduled GCB (originally titled Good Christian Bitches) to premiere next Monday night at 9pm.

A week later it will be 8:30pm, presumably after a shorter edition of X Factor.

It stars Kristin Chenoweth, Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, Miriam Shor, Marisol Nichols and Annie Potts.

There are just 10 episodes of this after the series was not renewed in the US.

GCB is a deliciously fun, wicked new drama that shows that you can go home again… but only if you’re ready to face the sins of your past.

Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb), once the ultimate high school “mean girl”, is forced to return home in disgrace after her marriage ends in scandal. Reluctant but desperate, Amanda has no choice but to turn to her mother, Gigi (Annie Potts), for help. Gigi, the quintessential proper Dallas socialite, wants nothing more than to have Amanda back and to give Amanda’s two teenage kids a good southern upbringing. The problem is that Amanda is nothing like the girl she was 20 years ago and is hesitant about re-entering this world of opulence, status and salacious rumour mills. She is hopeful for a new start, but soon finds it’s not that easy to escape your past in this tightknit community.

The women of Dallas are none too happy to see Amanda back in town. Carlene Cockburn (Kristin Chenoweth), once the ugly duckling, was tortured by Amanda in high school but has made quite the “assisted” transformation since. Now she has a picture-perfect, lavish life with a gorgeous husband, yet she still can’t seem to let go of old grudges. Then there’s Cricket Caruth-Reilly (Miriam Shor) whose boyfriend Amanda stole and later married. Cricket is now a tough-as-nails, successful businesswoman with a perfect marriage – at least so it appears from the outside. Sharon Peacham (Jennifer Aspen), the fallen beauty queen whose chance at the Miss Teen Dallas crown was snatched away by a malicious rumour Amanda started, hasn’t really been the same since. Finally, there’s Heather Cruz (Marisol Nichols), a bit of an outsider back in high school who has now become fully inducted into this twisted little social clique of affluent, sugary, God-fearing, steely women whose bark is as bad as their bite. You know what they say about payback, Amanda, it’s a…

  1. I actually really enjoyed this when it was on in the States. Soapy drama served up Texas style in the vein of Desperate Housewives. And the storylines focus on women (of a certain age) who don’t usually get the attention they deserve. Plus it has Kristin Chenoweth, who immediately makes any show must-watch TV for me!

  2. It looks like Smash may take either the Thursday 8:30 timeslot once Grey’s ends, or the 8:30 Sunday slot. Tuesdays are filled with Winners and Losers and Wednesdays have Criminal Minds

    Killing Time will probably go Wednesdays 9:30, unless they decide to pair it with a random show somewhere else
